Ascent Trip Report

Eric Noel's directions worked great which was fortunate as we had weather heading our way. My wife was concerned and I promised to go as fast as I could since I didn't want to be caught on the summit in a rain/thunder storm. As it turned out, I just made it before the thunder started booming s few miles away. I didn't stay for pics or to find the register as I made a hasty retreat off the mountain and then back the way we came. With the weather changing like that, we just headed for home and I gave up on doing Garfield Mountain down near Lima which I had planned to do the next day. Still, the directions provided by Eric Noel made all the difference in me getting this one as he took the mystery out of the road situation. Thank you Eric. By the way, my wife said the mountain must have been named after me.
